The auroras must not have received the memo that we are in the low of the solar cycle because it’s been a surprisingly active season thus far! We’re thrilled to announce our New Release White Satin. Photographed earlier this winter in Portage Valley, Alaska, I was listening to The Moody Blues song Nights In White Satin when colorful northern lights spread their wings to the music and soared through the moonlit sky. Add this to my other recent New Releases ~ Braids of Light ~ Mountain Mojo ~ Mystic Mascot ~ Anchorage Moonrise ~ and my heart sings so loud I have a hard time sleeping I’m so excited!

Each of these movies are a great way to experience the awe-inspiring auroras in motion through Todd's extensive time-lapse footage. Together, they provide an in-depth experience into real life aurora hunting and were many years in the making. Both visual journeys are enhanced with science and music that ranges from space-age acoustic sensations to aurora rock! 3-Movie Bundle
Here's a graph illustrating when in the solar cycle I've taken some of my favorite shots. The key thing to remember is that auroras occur throughout the cycle from Solar Max to Solar Min. They're just not quite as common during the lows in the cycle. More on the Solar Cycle
We are absolutely smitten with Metal Prints. The results of having my aurora & scenic shots printed on aluminum have been WOW-With Out Words! The inks are dye-infused onto a specially-coated aluminum sheet and sealed with a gemlike UV coating that is both water and scratch resistant. We have commonly heard people say, "It's like looking through a window"...."Are these backlit?"...."They look so 3D." And the archival quality is out of this world (think century plus). This is a technological breakthrough and the results are in HIGH DEF!
